BGPHist is a tool that receives MP-BGP updates, decodes them, and writes them to a database for logging and monitoring purposes. It support not only Internet routes, but also these address families: IPv4 multicast, IPv4 labeled unicast, VPNv4 unicast, IPv6 unicast, IPv6 labeled unicast, VPNv6 unicast, L2VPN VPLS-VPWS, and IPv4 MVPN. It supports text output, MySQL databases, and Oracle databases. For the MySQL backend, there is also a simple PHP frontend. It could be used to monitor and log an ISP's customer activity for Internet and VPNs, as a passive BGP looking glass, or as a backend for some external monitoring and accounting system.
Inject is program which can generate, inject and withdraw BGP routes, with a primary focus on network testing. It supports route and peer flapping, generation of random routes with (pseudo) random BGP attributes via a Cisco like CLI. Other features include a configuration file based on XML, test cases, help functions, and displaying of peer and route information.
bgpfeeder is a program to feed a BGPv4 speaker with an infrequently changing list of static internal routes. It is used at Bytemark to rearrange routing information from the "network organizer" database, to avoid staff having to log in to core routers to effect common routing changes. It is also used to communicate with transit providers to communicate "black hole" information about traffic that should not be passed on to the routers.
